TitleEntrance to Calvary Cemetery
DescriptionFrom text: "The improved taste of late years in the choice of sites for cemeteries and the methods adopted for their embellishment, together with the wide-felt public interest in them, and the laws which guard them from desecration, are certainly very aptly illustrated in Calvary.... The cemetery is located south of and adjoining the village of South Evanston, ten miles north from the City Hall. It is the largest and oldest of the Roman Catholic cemeteries of this city, and is fronting Sheridan Drive and Lake Michigan."
